Ciao Vinay. Bit tender sharp but intrigtant transparencies and brigh colours. Lovely compo.
good pov taken from above, Vinay
but the details and definition of this flamboyant Danaus chrysippus are definitely improving
Very well framed image of this Plain Tiger, Vinay. With a fine DOF like that, the butterfly and the perch stand out isolated from the background. The colours are rich and saturated to go well in this composition.
